Movie Reviews

Hooray for Ulysses and Frankie
Lisa Kevin Calladine | Annandale, Virginia | 07/05/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've watched this movie many many times and each time I fall in love with Ulysses and wish I could find someone like him, even if he's all nuts and bolts.

Maybe someday us ladies can have a guy made to our own specifications and know that he will be a winner everytime!!

So I've added this movie to my vast collection of much loved movies!

Way to go Frankie Stone.."
One of my personal favorites...

"I absolutely love this movie and recommend it to all my friends. This movie is very funny but romantic and warm as well. It reminds me of the screwball comedies from the 1930's and 40's. I very much like the stylized look of this movie. It has a very 60's meets 80's feel to it with a touch of futuristic space age mixed in. John Malkovich is so funny, charming and warm in this movie that it's hard to believe that this is the same actor who now does "serious" work. Ann Magnuson is very comedic, pretty and good, that it makes me wonder why she did not become a bigger star like Meg Ryan. I was quite excited when this movie was released on dvd. However, I was disappointed because the dvd really does not have any extra features over the vhs edition that I already owned. The movie gets 5 stars but this dvd format only gets 3 stars."
Great under-rated FLICK!

"This is a GREAT UNDER-RATED little 80's flick that I think more peolpe would enjoy if they just gave it a chance! All of the characters are so great and funny! I've never heard of Ann Magnusen but let me just say that she's great! So is John Malkovich! He plays 2 completely different charcters and does it very well! So just give this movie a chance! If I liked it, I'm sure you would too!"
Magnuson and Malkovich Magic
Sparkle&Glue | GA | 10/05/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is a treat! I don't see how anyone with a heart wouldn't like this movie. It is very sweet, funny and touching. John Malkovich is totally hiliarious in both his roles and Magnuson is great as Ulysses' love interest. Anne was perfect in her role as Frankie Stone, the sexy, smart and witty PR executive hired to fix and promote Jeff Peterson's Ulysses android mission to space.

This movie has laugh out loud moments. Seeing Jeff's reaction to Frankie's accidental influence on Ulysses is priceless. "My God, she's turning you into a hooker!!"


SPOILER------------------------














The twist at the end is perfect, especially seeing as how all along Jeff was the one more interested and basically primed for space. Ulysses just wanted to be human and loved. And he was the perfect "man" for Frankie.

The dvd transfer is perfect. I recommend buying it, especially if you are fan of the movie."
